Mid Level Budget
Don’t know if you caught the beginning of this series but I’m giving you a perspective of room budgets. I’m giving you base rooms of furnishing, art and area rugs. No built ins, flooring or window treatments or paint included. This week I’m hitting the mid level budget for your living room.
If you didn’t get a chance to catch the low budget room you can read it here.
The designer cost on this room can start around $4000 and rise based on level of involvement. In any event, let’s dive in. As stated before I’ll be giving you a similar room with items of a higher quality.
This time around I used a variety of sources. Most of them are what’s considered trade only, meaning you can mainly purchase them through a designer. Some of them are from well known companies but again you can get a better deal via a designer. Also these companies have shipping cost associated with them.
There won’t be affiliate links this time around because of the custom nature of the items. The prices won’t reflect shipping and white glove delivery because that’s priced at time of purchase. Having said that these items are of a higher quality than the low budget choices. The manufacturers have done things to increase the quality, made at time of order, use of solid hardwoods for the frames, 8 way hand tied construction, and so on.
This look was more time consuming to pull together, and the design cost reflects that. Also this look requires coordination with shippers, receivers, inspectors and delivery people all before the big reveal.
Enough with the behind the scenes already lady, let get this party started.
These selections are all excellent if you want your furniture to last 15+ years. They can be customized with performance fabric or more patterned if you like a little flair, if you want great furniture and also want kids/pets. Ultimately you get what you pay for and these choices are just a bit more elegant and have a higher quality.
Again this doesn’t include window coverings which I think is important to complete a room. Flooring changes that may be needed or a coordinating paint job,
Furnishings for this room are $9,130.00 and $4000 for design.
So a total cost of $13,130 for this room in its basic form.
